Can i replace this bedside

Hello, Im looking at getting my first diesel and i have found a good deal on one with not to many miles but and a banks chip. The only downside is a good size dent in the drivers side bed. I went and got an estimate and it is going to cost me $1000 to fix it. But i found a bedside from lmc for 450 shipped. Long story short can i unbolt the bad bedside and replace it with the new one or are they welded on.
thanks

Not the best pic, but I'd say it could be pulled without much trouble.

thanks for the advice but when i went to sign the title i found out it was rebuilt. The owner told me the only reason it was branded was because the first owner changed it from a 7.5 gas to a 7.3 diesel. Well i car faxed it and found out that it had been rolled over before so not so lucky on this one.

I'd say you are very lucky, you probably just saved yourself a lot of headaches!

Well he's wrong obviously! I think he was just trying to pull one over on you from the sounds of it. Hopefully you can find another one!
